Updated kernel - when the kernel updates it adds the options to your menu list, if you had a problem with the new kerrnel you could then boot the older one.

As you get kernel updates they will be added to the list - I think it's best to at least keep hold of 2 sets - current and previous.

You can edit the menu list to remove the option if you wish - this though doesn't actually remove the kernel.
